The message left on the filming set by Jaejoong, who have been into the character of Kim Kyung Tak since May. Hi everyone, I am Jaejoong who is acting as Kim Kyung Tak in Dr Jin. Everyone has been keeping up with the broadcast, right? ^^ I received a lot of energy from every viewers’ passionate attention and love. Even under such a hot summer, wearing hanbok and perspiring, I am still smiling while filming. As this is my first saeguk drama, I felt unfamiliar from the speaking tone to the costumes and hairstyle. But I adapted to it with the help from seniors. I am finally gotten used to the top knot that binds my forehead but the drama is ending soon. Such a pity~ Do love Dr Jin to the end~ I will also do my best till the end! 
1) Are sideburns Kim Kyung Tak’s pride? ^^ I don’t really use the mirror while filming, but I will neatly arranged my sideburns after putting the topknot on.

 2) Even for a while, the make up artists will come over with their brushes and touch up. You’ve worked hard. Applause.

 3) Manager Sung Ho piggybacked me. Sung Ho ah, I am not that heavy, don’t give such a tiring look!

4) I re-realised the beauty of hanbok after filming Dr Jin. Even more handsome with the fan, right.

 5) I got infatuated with horse riding recently. Every time when there’s a break, I will console the horse who had a tough time filming.

 6) Though I practiced with Yoochun but wearing the top knot is still difficult. TT I’m so lucky that I don’t have to stick on moustache.

 7) It’s always joyful to film with Yi Han hyung. I always wanted to laugh when I meet him.

 8) Teacher Kim In Soo who is acting as my father. His own character is in fact 180 degrees opposite from the character~ I’m thankful that he’s always taking care of me.

 9) This is the scene where I relayed my one-sided love for Young Rae. The mushy romantic lines aren’t really suitable to me.

The decision from the court on the matter of exclusive contract between SM Entertainment and JYJ (Jae Joong, Jun Su, and Yoo Chun) was postponed.

The decision was supposed to be given on July 19 at 10:00 a.m. at Seoul Central District Court. However, it was postponed again. The decision will now be given on August 10.

SM Entertainment and JYJ have tried to reconcile their differences, having postponed the court’s decision six times since May. However, the reconciliation couldn’t be brought about and they were again brought into court at the end of last year.

They set a date to plead the case in May and made their points to each other, but they couldn’t reconcile because of their clear differences. However, before the decision was made from the court, SM Entertainment proposed a settlement again.

JYJ filed for an injunction in 2009 to stop validity on the unfair exclusive contract between them and SM Entertainment. As the court granted it, SM Entertainment filed a lawsuit to confirm the validity of the exclusive contract and also brought an action for damage against them in April, 2010. At this, JYJ also filed a lawsuit to verify invalidity of the contract.

The court dismissed all actions brought by SM Entertainment against Jae Joong, Yoo Chun, and Jun Su in February last year. Through the decision from the court, the exclusive contract between SM Entertainment and JYJ was declared null and void.

JYJ’s Kim Jae Joong delivered 15.68 tons worth of rice wreaths to 50 children.

On July 16, Dreame, the company that hosts Dreame rice wreath donations, sent an official to the Korea Association of the Community Child Center (KACCC) to represent Kim Jae Joong and deliver the rice wreaths.

Out of the 23.68 tons of rice wreaths in total donated to support Kim Jae Joong at his Dr. Jin press conference, 8 tons had been sent off in June, and the remaining 15.68 tons were put to use this day.

In total, Kim Jae Joong donated 31 tons of rice wreaths, including 7 tons for his SBS drama Protect the Boss and the 23.68 tons for Dr. Jin.

Since October 2011, Kim Jae Joong had already been delivering 20kg each to 29 children every month with the 7 tons donated at the Protect the Boss press conference.

The additional rice donated for Dr. Jin will support a total of 50 children—the original 29 along with another 21 children—over 17 months with 20kg every month.

The children were chosen by KACCC after it received recommendations from 2,000 community child centers across the country. The final recipients were said to be in the most unfortunate circumstances among the 141 recommended children.

Shin Mi Hye, secretary general of KACCC, said, “Out of the 2.4 million neglected children in the country, only 100,000 receive care from their community child centers. We hope Kim Jae Joong and his fans’ good deeds will help draw national interest to neglected children.”

In the meantime Kim Jae Joong is currently appearing in MBC’s Dr. Jin as officer Kim Kyung Tak.
